ETV Radio’s Spoleto Today continued its annual coverage of the Spoleto festival in Charleston. Co-hosted by Marc Overton and the College of Charleston’s Jeanette Guinn, the show includes conversations with the international icons performing at Spoleto, clips from the most intriguing shows in this year’s roster of performances and highlights from the regional performances at the concurrent Piccolo Spoleto festival. For those who are still debating which tickets to buy, those who can’t make it, and those who simply love the arts, Spoleto Today is South Carolina’s annual passport to the renowned Spoleto Festival.
